MAY 2016 RRC CLUB SHIPMENT (Ships May 2, 2016)

Amapola Creek by Richard Arrowood has been built on a solid foundation of making wines of "quality without compromise”. Our May 2016 Richards Reserve Club selection features two wines that reflects this commitment. "There’s no resting on his laurels, even after a career that started in 1965 and continues 50+ years later", recently wrote Robert Parker, Jr. We hope you will enjoy these new releases as much as we did making them.

2013 Petite Sirah, Sonoma Valley, Monte Rosso Vineyards -  The 2013 Petite Sirah Monte Rosso Vineyard is a tiny production of 100% Petite Sirah and realistically priced. This wine offers terrific lead pencil notes intermixed with camphor, asphalt, blueberry and blackberry liqueur. The wine is full-bodied, super-rich and extracted, but has no hard edges, which is somewhat surprising, given its richness. It should drink well for 20-30 years as well. Robert Parker, Jr., 93+ Points, The Wine Advocate, March 2016, RRC Club Exclusive Price $50

2013 Cuvée Alis, Sonoma Valley, Estate Vineyard - The 2013 Cuvée Alis Estate (66% Grenache, 22% Mourvèdre and 12% Syrah) is a hefty, high-octane style (15.6% alcohol) with loads of kirsch liqueur, pepper, lavender, earth and underbrush. It is Provençal, deep, full-bodied, and a total lusty treat. Drink it over the next 5-6 years. Robert Parker Jr., 92 Points, The Wine Advocate, March 2016, Retail Price $48 / RRC Club Price $40.80
